Posted in thread: National Hombrew Day!!! on 05-02-2015 at 04:05 PM
Wasn't planning on brewing today but after seeing that today was national homebrew day how

Posted in thread: Modifying still dragon controller on 03-26-2015 at 11:48 PM
I'm currently in the process of doing a basement brewery build and as costs build up I'm
looking to build the controller on the cheap. I have the 30 amp 240 volt outlet in place, and

I received this hlt for my birthday last year in hopes of going to 10 gallon batches. I've

My trick is to grab a five gallon nylon paint strainer bag(couple dollars at either lowes or
Home Depot) and after sanitizing it I put in the primary and proceed to rack to either a keg or
Posted in thread: Bottling Beer - I need pointers. ASAP! on 12-21-2013 at 05:21 PM
Between my super agata bench capper,& vinator & bottle tree,bottling by myself isn't quite so
bad anymore. Now if I had a dedicated bottling table,it'd go even quicker. It's all in how you
set it up a...
